This week we found a musical composition titled, Why Old Places Matter by Composer, Eric Nathan. After Nathan spent time in Rome as a 2013 Rome Fellow and met Tom Mayes (author of the essay series “Why Old Places Matter”) he became inspired to create the piece. In a recent post on the National Trust for Historic Preservation Blog Nathan explained:
“I’m still figuring out exactly why and how old places matter to me. My piece was one attempt to try to understand that. So, perhaps my “wordless” answer in my piece might better speak to my evolving emotional engagement with old places.”
Why do old places matter?
Sit back, relax and turn up your volume to hear how Eric Nathan musically answered this exact question.
